What type of yoga does your course specialize in?
The style of yoga we share is Sadhana yoga, a spiritual practice of yoga which is a form of healing that works on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. You can click here to read more about the philosophy of Mystical Yoga. This unique approach to yoga combines the spirituality of Sadhana yoga with other traditional spiritual practices such as Shamanism.
Within the context of the 200-hour training program you will learn to teach two complete sequences, one is a Hatha Flow (Iyengar based) and the other is a Vinyasa Flow (Ashtanga based) and you will also learn to guide meditations.
What is the pace, flow, and style of Sadhana yoga?
Sadhana Yoga means yoga as a spiritual practice. We offer two variations of asana practice that are a blend of various traditions. The Vinyasa Flow practice is derived mainly from Ashtanga yoga and is a fast-paced flow. The second is a Hatha practice derived from Sivananda tradition, which is more meditative with longer held poses. Both sequences together provide you with a great foundation upon which to build any type of yoga class.
How many actual hours of yoga would we be doing a day?
We do a 2-hour asana practice in the morning and in the afternoon we do 2-3 hours of asana workshop. So total asana each day is 4-5 hours of practice and workshops.
